Who Is My Brother's Keeper Now? Caregiving: Yours, Mine, and Ours

In 1967, the concept of family caregiving was not talked about. It was a responsibility assumed by a spouse, parent, or child, the overwhelming majority of whom were female. There was no body of knowledge, nor was it covered in the media.
